The Shoot at Misson Springs
A group of small farmers, egged on by a schoolteacher, decided to revive the shoot that died out 30 years ago when the gentry departed. They gave their work to rear the birds, their diplomatic skill to curb the poachers, and each chipped in ten E5 notes - hardly enough for a serious shooting gentleman to light his cigars from. The results on any of their shoots are unpredictable; the camera followed them through a memorable day, hard, bright and short, the coldest of the winter. Commentary read by DERYCK GUYLER

: Hanna Reports

Hopeful Lunatics
Two ice-skaters who train between midnight and dawn and eight soldiers who volunteer for five years of self-torture.
These may be Britain's only hope for medals in the Winter Olympics next February. Are they mad or is this the peculiar British way of building champions?
In the second of his Sporting Profiles, Vincent Hanna probes the lives and minds of ice dancers GLYN WATTS and HILARY GREEN , who have neither jobs nor money because of their devotion to their sport, and the British Biathlon team who, to train, have to stay in the Army.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
